|3D Printing My Wedding Ring [message #46904] Fri, 13 April 2012 01:05 UTC
I usually don't ever leave feedback on things that I buy (besides the occasional "good seller, fast shipping" comment on amazon) but I was just so blown away by shapeways that I have to this time.|
I designed my and my fiance's wedding rings and I got them printed in silver (not at the same time) on shapeways. While I proposed with her wedding ring a couple months ago, I have been putting off printing my own to make sure there was nothing wrong with the model. After printing a prototype in white, strong, & flexible and wearing it for a few weeks, I decided that the latest model was perfect for my ring.
I ordered my ring on March 20th and the orders page informed me that it would be shipping sometime around April 6th. I eagerly awaited this date, to see it come and go with no shipping announcement. This was not entirely unexpected, as printing a silver ring requires a lot more steps than printing a plastic one, and since I wasn't on any kind of timeline, I patiently waited.
I got an email yesterday at noon saying that my ring had been mailed. What was so amazing was that I saw on the UPS site that it had been mailed with OVERNIGHT shipping! I didn't order overnight shipping, so it was a huge surprise when I saw that.
As I write this review now, I am wearing my wedding band and am very happy with it. I would never expect a company to overnight a product to me when they were just a bit overdue on production, and for this I am writing this shining review. So thank you shapeways for the amazing customer service and the amazing ring!
